We're excited to announce that Page Builder version
2.12.0 includes a new parallax scrolling setting. The new setting makes use of modern parallax methods, requires smaller images for a more noticeable effect, and offers better performance. Existing Page Builder users can optionally switch to the new setting by navigating to SettingsPage BuilderGeneralParallax Type: Modern. New Page Builder users will default to the new setting and can optionally switch to the Legacy setting.
Parallax scrolling is an option for Page Builder row, cell, and widget background images. SiteOrigin Premium offers parallax scrolling for the SiteOrigin Slider, SiteOrigin Hero, and SiteOrigin Layout Slider widgets. If you're unsure about the difference between fixed and parallax background images, our post What is the Difference Between Fixed and Parallax Background Images? has you covered.
The new parallax setting uses HTML images and the CSS transform property. The legacy parallax setting uses CSS background images and the CSS background-position property. The new setting can be used with smaller images and offers better performance. However, it cannot cover larger areas than the base image; the legacy setting can.
The new parallax scrolling effect makes use of the simpleParallax.js library.
Expand Parallax Scrolling to the SiteOrigin Slider Widgets
The SiteOrigin Premium Parallax Sliders addon enhances SiteOrigin slider widgets by providing parallax and fixed background image options. The following widgets are supported: SiteOrigin Slider Widget, SiteOrigin Hero Widget and the SiteOrigin Layout Slider Widget.
